The N4C-EA1 is a plastic ½” 110V AC electric solenoid valve. Specifically, the valve is manufactured out of NORYL GTX830 resin. This resin gives the valve superb chemical and heat resistance while also providing high stiffness. The compactness of its body allows this valve to be used in a variety of applications.
The valve’s coil itself is encapsulated in a NEMA 4 rated enclosure, making this valve perfect for either indoor or outdoor applications. This enclosure helps protect against rainfall, windblown dust, and ice forming damage. While the enclosure adequately protects against hose-directed water and splashing, do not fully submerge the valve.
As this is a normally closed valve, it is closed when not receiving power. A minimum pressure of 5 psi is necessary to open up the valve after energizing since it is pilot operated. The valves are two-way and unidirectional, therefore media should only flow through the “In” port and out of the “Out” port. This valve is not made to withstand backpressure exerted into the “Out” port.
The 18” lead wires that extend from the coil itself allow for connection to your own power supply. This is a lower power valve where only 6 watts of power is necessary to actuate the valve. The response time of the valve is extremely fast acting; it actuates in less than one second.
